ILLUSTRATED STORIES OF WISDOM Have your children introduced to the wisdom of two of the most popular of Aesop's fables: The Hare and the Tortoise The Fox and the Stork (The Crane and the Fox) Fully illustrated: Every page is a colorful adventure. The text is easy to read and the illustrations look fun and inviting to a child. This book works great for bedtime storytelling as well. Preface "Hey, hurry up!" said Tom the woodpecker flying by his friend Sally. "What? Where to?" asked Sally. "There's a race coming up. Most of our friends are already at the sunny meadow." Sally spread her wings and took off. It was an early summer day. She felt the warm breeze of the wind beneath her wings. She flew above the nearby lake and saw from afar that the Stork was cooking a stew. An appetizing smell was steaming up from the cooking pot. There was no time to stop and chat with the Stork, because she was already nearing the sunny meadow. She saw Tom sitting high up on an elm tree branch and flew down to join him. "I hope I'm not late," she said. "You're right on time. It's just about to start." Down below, the Tortoise and the Hare were already lining up. The meadow was full of curious little animal faces. Peeking through the clouds, the sun was no less curious than everyone else. The racers were ready and waiting for the start signal. It was a challenge like no other.

Containing the best of Aesop's fables, this text presents a variety of entertaining stories with thought-provoking morals – alongside Rackham's beautifully imaginative and humourous illustrations. Aesop was a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BCE. Of diverse origins, the stories associated with Aesop's name have descended to modern times through a number of sources – and continue to be reinterpreted in both literary and artistic mediums. Aesop's fables are accompanied by a series of dazzling illustrations by Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration (which encompassed the years from 1850 until the start of the First World War), Rackham's artistry is quite simply, unparalleled. Throughout his career, he developed a unique style, combining haunting humour with dream-like romance. Presented alongside the text, his illustrations further refine and elucidate Aesop's masterful storytelling. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.
